Excellent Astronomy start-up book (and beyond),
This review is from: Universe (Paperback)
First the bad: The paper is just .. too thin. The whole book tends to wrap around your hands while you are turning pages - so you definitely cannot read it in bed :)
It has a lot of pages so it bends on the bookshelf unless kept lying down.
The good: The amount of information inside is just great and is really nicely explained and ordered. I used this book for my university studies, and found it helpful with all the examples and detailed approach to the matter of study.
If you are not a nitpick as far as the (pages) paper goes, I recommend it for any astronomy interest, amateur and students likewise.
